  • do his eyes crust shut or have stuff gathering in his eye lashes? Are his eyes blood shot? is he saying they hurt or it feels like something is in them? Google images of pink eye. If it is pink eye you can put a warm tea bag on his eye. It will help clear it and relieve some pain, My grandma swears by this!

  • Could just be allergy eyes. At the minimum, flush it out with a saline solution. Similsan makes a pink eye formula. there are several brands of allergy eye drops.
